Chris came to faith in Christ as a child and was raised in a family that was dedicated to serving the Lord. Chris and his wife Laurie met through a campus ministry at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. Chris practiced law in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for several years while leading ministries in his church and in their neighborhood. Those ministries led to God's calling to full-time ministry. Chris and Laurie moved back to Norman to lead campus ministries developing students into multiplying leaders around the world. Chris served on a regional leadership team overseeing ministry in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana. Laurie is on staff with Entrust as an organizational strategist. They have two married adult children.

“I am humbled and excited to serve the Entrust community. The Lord used Psalm 105:1 to call me into full-time Christian service. ‘Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done.’ I know of no other ministry that better embraces the concept of training multiplying leaders to make the Lord’s name known among the nations.”
